LLD is proud to introduce our families to our new friend Sage Spoonfuls founder Liza Huber. You may know the busy mother of three from the NBC daytime drama Passions. She also had the honor of being Miss Golden Globe in the year 2000. Her mother is Emmy-Award winning Susan Lucci of "All My Children". I invite you to get to know Liza-she’s great!
It is always so interesting to hear everyone’s story on how they got started. What inspired you?
My children were, and continue to be, my inspiration for Sage Spoonfuls. I first had the idea 5 years ago when my oldest was born and I started making his baby food. There were no products on the market that made it easy for moms. Then, when my second son came 2 months early and spent 6 weeks in the NICU, I knew I wouldn’t go back to work in the traditional sense for a while so I could be home with him. That was when I decided to pursue and develop my idea for Sage Spoonfuls, because I could work from home. When I was pregnant with our third baby, our daughter Hayden, I was on bed rest for the second half of my pregnancy. That is when I finished my book and pulled it all together. Royce was the initial inspiration, Brendan was the decision to pursue it and Hayden was the catalyst to get it all pulled together!
What is your favorite simple recipe that you recommend to busy moms?
As a mom, my motto is “Sanity lies in preparation”. That is the idea behind Sage Spoonfuls. All baby food recipes are simple, but the key to making it easy is by preparing the foods in bulk and storing in Sage Spoonfuls jars in the freezer. This way, you always have a stock of fresh, delicious and healthy baby food available. All you need is 1 hour every 2 weeks, minimal effort for maximum benefit!
